VirtualRadio is a mobile application for Java phones that allows you to listen to Internet radio stations. It is based on one single basic functionality: playing a given set of Internet radio channels. Just start up the player and it immediately starts playing audio. There is no need to define play lists or find and type in URL’s. All you have to do is select from a given set of channels.
VirtualRadio brings Web radio stations to your phone: Turn your mobile phone into a Web radio player and enjoy music, talk and news from all over the world! VirtualRadio connects to the Internet through your mobile phone operator’s network and links to more than 1,500 radio stations from all over the world.
Continually new radios stations are added to VirtualRadio. If you can not find your preferred radio station among the selected stations, tell them so they can include your preferred radio station into VirtualRadio!
To optimize the user experience for regular Java phones, VirtualRadio FREE contains channels with a low bandwidth only (max. 32kbps).
VirtualRadio, free version, runs on most common Java phones and also on Symbian Smartphones.
If you have a modern phone, you can directly connect to the Internet by using Wi-fi (WLAN or hotspots) and you can hear radio without being charged by your mobile phone operator. If you are not using Wi-fi (or have an older phone which does not support Wi-fi), you will need to have a working Internet connection from your mobile phone to your mobile phone operator’s network. Many operators configure your phone automatically. If not, you will have to define the Access Point yourself. Rather use an “Internet” than a “WAP” Access Point. VirtualRadio is a typical 3G application, but it can also be used on GPRS and EDGE networks.
Listening to VirtualRadio through your operator’s network will create a lot of download traffic! If you don’t have a “flat rate” or unlimited payment plan, the unlimited download of sound can become very expensive very quickly! If in doubt, ask your operator!
Another version called VirtualRadio PRO contains the low AND high bandwidth streams. VirtualRadio PRO runs perfectly on Smartphones with Symbian Operating System like Nokia S60 phones, SonyEricsson UIQ, Motorola, Siemens SX1, BenQ, Arima and Sendo X.
